WordFUL Wednesday ~ Why?

So that other parents have ornaments that their children made, and hung on the tree themselves, on their Christmas Tree, instead of one "In Memory Of".



So that other parents see their childrens' faces light up on Christmas Day, instead of decorating their grave.



So that other premature babies live....we March for Babies.



Can you help us?

In Memory of Baby JW

What a beautiful post about your son and the difference that the march of dimes can make.. I had no idea you lost a child to prematurity. I'm SO very sorry!

I'm so sorry for your pain as I know it will always be there, but what a wonderful thing you're doing for others. I work with my neighbor on this cause. :)

This is a very heart wrenching but beautifully created post. I've missed seeing you around (well, I've been tweeting and not really blogging). I am so sure that you exceed your goal.

We've talked about JW, but it wasn't until today I realized he was born the same year as my youngest. An extra hug for you my friend.

I'm stopping over from SITS.

I've been staring at your post for the past 15 minutes. It's beautiful and I have to admit I'm heartbroken I can't help sponsor you. We really have nothing to give financially {my husband has been unemployed for 5 months} but you have inspired me to participate in the March for Babies. I just formed a team that will be marching May 2. I will be thinking of you and your angel.

Prayers for you, my friend.

OK, you have me in tears. I always give to March of Dimes through work. Last year a group of us marched in Philly. That was truly a beautiful post and I thank you for sharing. I'm going to see if I can pull a little money together to sponsor you too. *hugs*

Susan Anderson said...

I hope you don't mind but I was so moved by your post that I posted a link for it on my blog in the hopes of people coming back here and sponsoring you. Please let me know if you need anything changed.

Have I been blogging with you for a year? I remember when you first mentioned Baby JW and March for Babies.

I remember a post you wrote awhile back about Baby JW and it broke my heart.

Being that both sets of twins were born prematurely, we donate twice a year to March of Dimes!
